Dame Valarie Adams qualifies for 5th Olympics

Dame Valerie Adams has thrown 18.65m in her latest event to qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Adams qualified at the Potts Classic in Hastings, which was held last weekend.

The event was her first competition in 20 months after taking time out to have her second child.

Dame Valerie bettered the Tokyo Olympic Games entry standard of 18.50m.

She also met the entry standard (18.30m) for the World Athletics Indoor Championships coming up in March.

It’s the fifth time Dame Valerie has qualified for the Olympics. She has won two golds and one silver medal in shot put at previous Olympics.
